The Inspector (Part 2)

In this lesson, we will explore how Priestley presents the differences between Mr Birling and the Inspector. We will revisit some key contextual knowledge about the differences between life in 1912 when the play was set and 1945 when it was written. This lesson makes reference to the topics of violence and suicide. If these issues are sensitive for you, we recommend checking with a trusted adult before starting, or doing the lesson with a trusted adult nearby.
